Red Roses for Over 40,000 Teachers Across Malaysia on Teachers’ Day

June 1, 2012

Over 40,000 roses and special thank you notes were delivered to secondary school teachers throughout Malaysia in conjunction with Teachers’ Day to acknowledge their contribution to students and to society as a whole. This initiative was driven by INTI International University and Colleges (INTI) in appreciation of the nation’s dedicated educators who go beyond the call of duty in educating and inspiring tomorrow’s leaders today.

This was the first time INTI had organised an event of such scale as part of Teachers’ Day celebrations. Many teachers were pleasantly surprised by the gesture and were grateful that their hard work and dedication were acknowledged.


INTI’s initiative includes forthcoming conventions in Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor. Dubbed “INTI Teachers’ Convention”, they are organised for teachers across Malaysia to come together and gain knowledge of new and alternative methods of teaching and learning. Colonel Professor Datuk Dr. Kamarudin Kachar, National Chief Scout Commissioner, will be a guest speaker at the convention in Kuala Lumpur to share his insight on youth development. Over 300 teachers are expected to attend the convention on May 19, 2012 at the Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.
